This has driven me to nuts!

I open a new window from a JSP.



From this new window, I want to put some code in it's opener.



And in IE7, window.opener is null, whereas it works fine in FF.
Any ideas what can be wrong? Or any workaround?

Thanks

Why are you using window.opener with a modal window?
